The Federal Law 'On Federal Security Service Agencies of the Russian Federation' of 1995: Some Areas of Concern in the Process of Adopting
Abstract.In his article Esipov traces back the process of adoption of the federal law on Security Service Agencies of the Russian Federation of 1995. The author of the article analyses problems that are related to adoption and singing of the aforesaid law in terms of reformation of Russia's state security agencies at the beginning of the 1990. Noteworthy that adoption of that law was preceded with the transformatoin of the state security system in 1993 - 1994 which weakened the system yet again. When being discussed by the National Duma of the Russian Federation, the law was changed a lot including the title thereof. As a result, the Counterintelligence Service was renamed as security services. The Federal Security Service Agencies of the Russian Federation replaced the law on federal state security agencies of 1992. That law set forth general provisions regulating activity of the Federal Security Services, purposes, principles, competences, control and supervision thereof. In his research the author has used such methods as the method of structured system analysis, legalistic method, comparative law method, and legal modelling method. The author of the article gives a comparative description of two legal acts and describes their similarities and differences. As it has turned out, many provisions of the law on federal state security authorities have been transferred to the law on Federal Security Service agencies. As a result, the author makes a conclusion that the law of 1992 could have been amended instead of adopting a new law. That would reduce time and efforts that have been taken to improve the legal basis of the security service.
